    EBOOK ☆ EPUB China Dream ì HardcoverFREE Ä MA JIAN China DreamThis strange hallucinatory novella deals with the terrible legacy of Mao’s Cultural Revolution through the eyes of a repellent bureaucrat named Ma Daode Despite his attempts to forget he is haunted by events of the past that sabotage his current success The novella is episodic in structure and certain chapters worked much better for me than others I disliked the extended seuence in the brothel which made a po

    EBOOK ☆ EPUB China Dream ì HardcoverFREE Ä MA JIAN China Dream Men and ghosts are intricately entwinedA short and vicious satire about the party state in contemporary China Ma Jian writes about a corrupt venal office sitter named Ma Daode 'Daode' here 道德 means 'ethical' When he's not defrauding his constituents bulldozing their houses or kissing his boss's ass he finds time for his many mistresses He also gets sloshed at the Red Guard Nightclub so named because the servers are all in skimpy green uniforms Ma Daode has a darker side; he is haunted by fugue like visions about the convulsive violence of the Cultural Revolution Mao's power play to wrest political control of the country starting a decade after the Great Leap Foward Grief and long repr

    EBOOK ☆ EPUB China Dream ì HardcoverFREE Ä MA JIAN China DreamLike the author notes in the preface China Dream is written in a rage and understandably so as Xi Jinping’s China with its Chinese Dream is beginning to resemble something potentially as dangerous as Mao’s Cultural Revolution in the 1960s and 70s Unfortunately for me this rage does not uite turn into something “poetic” or “dream like” like the blurb suggests This is rather coarse in language and violent in content with than a few scenes of unrealistic action and dialogue This might however indicate a problem in translation or me being unaware of some culture related nuances or simply me misreading the novel not uite buying that implausibility euals “dream like” I appreciated the reading experience nonetheless as it exposed me to Chinese history and reminded me of some bewildering things such as the Great Leap Forward A

    EBOOK ☆ EPUB China Dream ì HardcoverFREE Ä MA JIAN China DreamI picked up this book without knowing about the author or the content just assuming it's a satirical novella and maybe a kind of alt history SFF? It's ghost story fantasy than science fiction which is my only complaint When I read a passage like this in the first chapterOnce

    EBOOK ☆ EPUB China Dream ì HardcoverFREE Ä MA JIAN China DreamThis certainly is not subtle in criticising the moral failings of the Chinese leadershipThe main character's mental state slowly disintegrates as he grapples with his memories of the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution with his role as a senior government official creating a ‘new dream of China’s rejuvenation’ balancing the idolisation of Mao with Xi Jinping and his sexual appetite There's plenty of black humour examples of corruption nepotism cronyism and removal of any dark stains of recent Chinese history No wonder the author is banned in China

    EBOOK ☆ EPUB China Dream ì HardcoverFREE Ä MA JIAN China DreamNot RecommendedI must admit I often find it difficult to review foreign language political fiction I find Satire as a genre is hindered by translation and cultural differences far than most and that can sometimes make it difficult to know if if I have a good grasp on the text or not What things do i not understand because they are poorly presented and what things do I not understand because it was written with a mind ualitatively different to my own? I also had this problem with the Strugatsky brothers' 'Hard to be a God' and Zamyatin's 'We' Nonetheless There comes a time to simply come clean and say what I thought about the book In China Dream's case it's nothing good The book initially caught my attention with the blurb proportioning to be focused on plans for a microchip that will be
